Peanut Butter Pie

Thursday, May 6, 2010

One of my friends brought this heavenly pie to a gathering a couple of weeks ago. I enjoyed it so much that of course I had to get the recipe and make it myself! :) Not only is it creamy, rich and peanut buttery, but it is also super easy to make! If you need a chocolate and peanut butter fix, this is the recipe for you!

From AnnaLisa:

Ingredients:
FILLING:
1- 8 oz. cool whip
1 pkg. (8 oz) cream cheese
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup creamy peanut butter
1 tsp. vanilla

1 cup chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet)
~1/4 cup milk


OREO CRUST

1-1/2 cups finely crushed Oreo cookie crumbs
3 Tbs. melted butter

For crust, generously butter a 9 inch glass pie plate. In a large bowl, stir together the cookie crumbs and the melted butter. (You can crush the cookies in a food processor or blender.) Using your fingertips, firmly and evenly press the mixture into the bottom and sides of the pie plate.

For filling, whip together cool whip, softened cream cheese, sugar, peanut butter, and vanilla. Pour mixture in the Oreo crust. Line bottom of separate bowl with chocolate chips and pour in enough milk (1/4-1/3 cup) so that chocolate chips are about half covered. Cover with plastic wrap and melt in microwave for 1 minute stirring it when there's 30 seconds left. After fully melted, spread thin layer over top of peanut butter filling.

Chill in refrigerator. I cooled mine overnight, although I think just a couple of hours would work.
Enjoy!

I always need a chocolate and PB fix. I'm sure I could devour more than my fair share of this!

If you really want to gild the lily, pour a thin layer of hot fudge in the bottom of the pie crust before you pour the peanut butter mixture over. It's just like what they used to serve in the Deseret Towers cafeteria, except theirs had a regular pie crust. :)
